Davidson’s Fellowships and Scholarships Program connects students and recent alumni to prestigious and world-renowned fellowships and scholarships, including the Fulbright U.S. Student Program, Thomas J. Watson Fellowship, Rhodes Scholarship and more.

The program approaches each application process as a learning opportunity with the potential to be a formative experience, helping candidates articulate their strengths, refine their goals and envision their lives of leadership and service.

Advising & Assistance

We offer comprehensive support, including one-on-one advising, group information sessions, mock interviews and other resources. Students are encouraged to begin exploring fellowships and scholarships early in their first or second year at Davidson. Interested candidates (including students and alumni) are invited to contact Gaylena Merritt, Assistant Director for Fellowships & Scholarships, or to schedule a Fellowships & Scholarships advising appointment in Handshake (login required).
